EIAgen Syphilis New Generation


Treponema Pallidum

brief description

The serological diagnosis of syphilis is performed by demonstrating the presence of significant levels of specific Treponema pallidum (TP) antibodies in the serum sample. The reference method used is the FTA-ABS technique but its execution is laborious and the interpretation of the results is not simple; alternative methods have therefore been introduced to simplify the procedure. The TPHA test is the preferred technique for screening purposes, in as far as it detects specific Ig even at low titers. Unfortunately, the result of the test is determined by subjective interpretation as the test cannot be completely automated. The TPHA test is not sensitive in the primary phase. The present kit allows screening with the sandwich ELISA method. It reveals the presence of specific antibodies of any class, and can be completely automated. The antigen used is obtained by a recombinant technique.

intended use

Immunoenzymatic kit for the qualitative determination of anti-Treponema Pallidum immunoglobulins in human serum or plasma.
